Magpul MOE Scout Mount

MOE Scout Mount PIctures

Another Magpul accessory for their MOE line has been released, this time its the new Magpul MOE Scout Mount.  This new light mounting accessory from Magpul differs slightly from their illumination kit with its cantilever design positioning the light a little bit more forward for a more ergonomic option.

The Magpul MOE Scout Mount is designed specifically for the SureFire Scout Light Weaponlights and other 1913 Picatinny mounted lights–if the Scout Light is out of your budget (around $300) then the Streamlight TLR series (starting at $100) will attach just fine.  It features a low profile design and is made of polymer keeping the weight down.  The MOE Scout Mount is designed to attach to Magpul’s MOE handguards.  Two models are available–one for the left side of your handguards to mount a light at the 11 o’clock and one for the right, 1 o’clock position.  Just like other Magpul products the MOE Scout Mount is priced very reasonably at only $10 and is available now at your local or online gun stores and directly at Magpul.com.
